actualy, both of them are pointers to const char strings from struct pmu_event,
so they don't need to be freed

the journey starts at __add_metric function, where we
get the struct pmu_event pointers:

	ref->metric_name = pe->metric_name;
	ref->metric_expr = pe->metric_expr;

then it's passed to struct metric_ref in metricgroup__setup_events:

	metric_refs[i].metric_name = ref->metric_name;
	metric_refs[i].metric_expr = ref->metric_expr;

still 'const char*'.. and ending up as part of the value in
expr__add_ref function:

	data_ptr->ref.metric_name = ref->metric_name;
	data_ptr->ref.metric_expr = ref->metric_expr;

I'll put comments in all those places so it's evident that it's intentional
